Here's this week's edition of Craig Meyer's West High School Football Notebook.
"For four years, the Hopewell football team had the ultimate personnel advantage.
It was during that four-year span when the Vikings' backfield was graced by Rushel Shell, the state's all-time leading rusher and one of the most accomplished players to come out of Western Pennsylvania over the past two decades.
With 9,078 career yards, he tormented opposing defenses and, in the process, helped lead his team to a WPIAL championship game appearance in 2009 that marked the height of a strong and successful run.
Since then, however, much has changed."
